If it was me James I would just paint more jetbikes green. If you want to go red later then you still can, but if you just do up more jetbikes for now then at least you can try before you fully commit.

But I've always had red epic Sami Hann eldar. So wouldn't have green eldar to begin with ;)

Update: tempests.

These old super heavies can count as scorpions:

And storm serpents:

I will probably just use my warp hunters as Cobras if I want to field them, but I could mount a Titan d-cannon on here thanks to the magic of magnets if I needed to.

I might magnetise the night spinner guns some day too,so I could run them as void spinners.
So many options, so few magnets! :D

LOVE the Storm Serpent. Great use of classic parts.

RE colours, not only do I have Eldar vehicles already basecoated green, but with Evil Sunz and Blood Angels I already have a lot of red coloured Epic figures already. I need some variety in colours!

:)

good to see so much progress on the army, the old models with a more modern paintjob just look so great! especially impressed with the titans, nice job on the jems and blends :)

As said by others great colour scheme, like the basing also, simple basing i use myself with 2 different sizes of model railway ballast superglued to base, already black then just dry brush grey, Easy to replicate through the whole army and quick also ;) Look forward to more updates.

Nice army.

Almost tempting to revisit my own Saim Hann. I think I may even try to paint an Eldar Titan based on your scheme :) imitation is the greatest form of flattery.

Cheers folks! You're too kind :-*

So I got more of my stuff out of storage. The year of the eldar begins...

So I have painted up the falcons that were in the box.

Complete with freehand Saim-Hann symbols of dubious quality! Not my finest work, but they are fit for purpose.

With glowy blue jets.

Luckily quantity has a quality of it's own. ;)

I need more 40mm round bases now!

Cheers everyone. The Falcons are one of those models that polarise different people. To me they just look like Falcons, as that's how they looked when I was gaming and first used them. But people who are newer to the game wouldn't recognise them as Falcons, as they relate to the much sexier current styling. But it's all good, I'm not too fussed about using all these old models.

And speaking of older models, I've painted up another one.
